    Translated correct caption provided by Damian90.
    Another week ended with winter training for units from "Black Division". Training near Żagań just ended for 1st Batalion of motorized infantry from 17th Wielkopolska mechanized brigade, and already on forest roads you can hear engines of Leopard tanks from Świętoszów (10th Armored Cavalry Brigade).

    The two-week exercise in Otterburn, Northumberland, has tested 1600 soldiers from 18 British Regular and Reserve regiments alongside members of the 35 (French) Regiment Air Parachutiste.
